Michelle Obama’s money-making
hypocrisy is laughable

New York Post, by Maureen Callahan

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 11/15/2018 4:42:32 AM

CHICAGO — To read the worshipful press coverage you’d never know that, for Democrats, the unthinkable has happened: Michelle Obama has revealed herself as just another guru for sale. On Tuesday night, the former first lady kicked off her 10-city North American book tour, which more closely resembled a cult-of-personality-propaganda-rally, at the United Center in Chicago. (Dates have been added in London, where scalped tickets are going for over $90,000 each, and Paris.) A sliver of the 20,000 seats available for the Chicago event were priced at $29.50, and those sold out within five minutes of going on sale in September.

It is incomprehensible to me that anyone would pay anything, much less $90k, for a ticket to see this person.

Another elitist doing anything it takes to stay an elitist. Hypocrisy? It exists in the mantra she and her spouse were proclaiming, "share the wealth." They belong in the crowd that is grabbing for power and money. Our money to line their pockets and ideologies.

It may be laughable but it is also sad and scary.

As much as I have been disappointed by the Bushes, they are old money and I don’t ever remember any of them charging a fee to be seen on a book tour.

The Clintons and 0bamas are the epitome of no class grubbing new money.

I had my disappointments with the Bushes´. However, all of them are patriots and have class. GW does alot of charity work for wounded veterans and still visits military hospitals under the radar (as in no cameras)

Seen the Obamas doing this??? Nope.

By the way, I started reading the article and about the time I was going to puke I stopped.

I just have the strangest feeling that these 2 self-servers will go through that money in a few short years.

Worth repeating that in 2003, they were not able to pay their bills. Can´t imagine they are intelligent enough to have "money managers".

Final thought, I suspect that Mooch wants to be Ellen. Better that phoney role than attempting to be potus.

Barack gets a pension and they´re raking in millions so they can pay for their own security and stop his pension. It´s not 1952 and a poor Harry Truman, former President, with no income after leaving office.

Same for the Clintons.

I didn´t come from a family with money. We were a post depression household. My dad worked a steady job (when there was work!)
We didn´t have much, but we weren´t poor.
Poor is when you do not have a roof over your head, food to eat and clothing on your back. Even though it was second and sometimes third handed, we were clothed. Our food was simple but adequate. Our little rented apartment was far from desirable. But we weren´t poor. We didn´t dwell on "POOR". We had all of the above. We had plenty of love. We had caring family and neighbors (same situation we were in) and we were able to keep our heads above water, but barely.
My siblings and I were brought up to aspire to do what it took to achieve a better future, and we did. Little by little things work-wise got better for my dad and eventually my mom found a job.
It made a difference to my mom and dad financially, but the love and caring from family was always abundant.

Michelle, you are full of beans.

#4--No, she most certainly can´t. Because this is about the cult of personality--not about her book. (Which she most assuredly did not write herself.) I saw Bush 43 at a Barnes & Noble book signing in Houston--but that sort of rubbing elbows with the unwashed is beneath her. (And, I was spit at on the sidewalk afterward by protesters and called names for buying the book.

The Clintons set the corruption bar pretty high and the Obamas are determined to match or exceed them. Both couples are nothing but money grubbing rabid left wing ideologues that would destroy this country in a heartbeat if they thought it would enrich their coffers. It has been said that money can’t buy taste or class and these four are living proof of it. They are tasteless, classless fools driven by ambition and greed.

State Department email records show that environmental activists who have denied operating as foreign agents in response to congressional inquiries partnered with Obama administration officials to advance climate change policies that were beneficial to China and detrimental to the United States, according to energy policy analysts and attorneys who have reviewed the electronic correspondence. The World Resources Institute, a Washington D.C.-based nonprofit devoted to curtailing greenhouse gas emissions and promoting sustainable development, was one of several environmental advocacy groups that received letters from the House Natural Resources Committee in 2018 inquiring about their relationship with China´s government and the impact

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the movie theatre, for entertainment and not progressive indoctrination, think again. Netflix just paid a record $10 million for a hagiographic documentary on Democratic starlet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Studio bosses never let such trifles as box-office poison change their social justice warrior ways. Netflix outbid Hulu,

A federal fund created to assist victims of the 9/11 terror attacks will slash payments by at least 50 percent as it struggles to deal with a surge of new claims, officials said Friday. Victims with existing claims will have payments slashed in half while claims filed after Feb. 1 of this year would see deeper cuts of up to 70 percent, they said. September 11th Victim Compensation Fund special master Rupa Bhattacharyya said the fund received a “record number of claims” last year and that she’s “painfully aware of the inequity of the situation.”

The other day all the major new outlets were covering a story about Elizabeth Warren saying on the campaign trail in Iowa that Donald Trump “might not even be a free person” but rather in jail at the time of the 2020 Presidential election. Call this phenomenon the “hypothetical news.” Donald Trump might launch a preemptive nuclear attack on North Korea. Donald Trump might withdraw from NATO. Donald Trump might fire his Chief of Staff. Donald Trump might be crazy. More subtle examples of hypothetical news are: there is “widespread concern on Wall Street” that Donald Trump might fire

On Tuesday’s show this week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson revealed that he had tried to take the Russian “collusion” accusations and the launch of subsequent investigations seriously for about three months. It is Carlson’s job as a journalist to keep an open mind for as long as possible when such a serious allegation has been made. He apparently kept that open mind for three months, until the ridiculousness of it all could not be ignored. A majority of the left, the Democrats, and their “mainstream” media arm have pounded the spurious collusion narrative for over two years.

Independent Investigation Shows Covington Boys

The results of an independent investigation into the January 18, 2019 Lincoln Memorial confrontation between leftist activist Nathan Phillips, black supremacist group the Black Hebrew Israelites and students from Covington Catholic High School were released Wednesday by Greater Cincinatti Investigation, Inc. The report, which is four pages long, shows what everyone could have known initially if the time was taken to reach for context: Covington students didn´t use a single racial slur against either Phillips or the Black Hebrew Israelites and they didn´t instigate the confrontation. In fact, it was the opposite.

If there were a state that could educate Americans on politics, and what happens when virtue smacks up against raw political power, you’d have to say it’s Virginia. Illinois is broken. People flee Illinois for the same reason they flee New York: taxes. But they don’t run from Virginia. They gravitate to Northern Virginia, home to some of the wealthiest counties in the country, and all those rich lawyers and lobbyists and journos and politicos and equestrians work in Washington. These are the rulers and the palace guards, the gatekeepers and peddlers of influence. In another age, another place,

Million Clinton Campaign Money Laundering

Tuesday evening the Committee to Defend the President (CDP) filed a motion in a D.C. federal court seeking to supplement the complaint it had filed against the Federal Election Committee (FEC) in April 2018. In its original complaint, the CDP alleged that the agency responsible for enforcing campaign-finance law failed to act on an administrative complaint the CDP had filed with the FEC. That complaint charged that, during the 2016 presidential election, Democrats illegally funneled approximately $84 million through the Hillary Victory Fund to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which then illegally coordinated with the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

President Donald Trump demanded Wednesday evening that the State of California return $3.5 billion in federal funds after Gov. Gavin Newsom canceled most of the state’s high-speed rail project, saying it was too expensive. “California has been forced to cancel the massive bullet train project after having spent and wasted many billions of dollars,” the president tweeted. “They owe the Federal Government three and a half billion dollars. We want that money back now. Whole project is a “green” disaster!”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich.
